As was the case for Shailene Woodley, 19-year-old actress Joey King had to shave her head for her role in The Act. Though, by this point, shaving her head was pretty much old hat. The actress actually had to shave her head for two previous films: The Dark Knight Rises, when she was just 11 years old, and Wish I Was Here, when she was just 14.
“I’ve never really had an attachment to my hair,” she explained in an interview with Allure in 2018. “I couldn’t care less what happens to it.” She continued, saying, “So many people would ask me, ‘Are you really scared?’ or ‘Are you nervous?’ or say, ‘You’re so brave.’ And I’d go, ‘I’m not brave. I’m just cutting my hair off.'” Now, that’s the spirit. By March 2019, King’s hair had grown out into a stunning, edgy pixie and, as Young Adult author Beth Reekles told the actress on Instagram, she’s “looking fierce AF, as always.”
